Mom has congestive heart failure and an enlarged heart among a host of other medical issues. She goes to see cardioligist this Thursday. She has been having trouble breathing, I have said we need to go to the hospital. She refuses. She believes that if she goes to hospital she will never come home again. Which hard to say, but, I know the end is near and I dont want to watch her suffer anymore than she already does.
Anyway my question is this: If they send her to the hospital to get some of the fluid off of her with IV lasix, how quickly will it come back on?
And if they decide to put her on oxygen will that help because of all the fluid build up?
